"I think the Randy Potter
course is an extra-ordinary achievement, a terrific investment
for anyone who wants to become a piano technician or upgrade
their professional skills, and an unbeatable value for the price.
Not only does it bring together more information about piano
technology than has ever existed in one place, it does so in a
philosophical and ethical context conducive to producing
craftspeople who will be a credit to their profession, and
provides a firm practical foundation for their business success.
Combined with plenty of practice, apprenticeship and continuing
education, this course is one of the best vehicles available
today for learning piano technology."
Larry Fine, RPT
"Your course is really top drawer. I have spent a lot of money for things that weren't as good for me. I think every tuner, and every responsible R.P.T., ought to take this course. You have done a tremendous service for the piano tuning community. The tuning tape is the best tuning class I have ever seen. Somebody ought to tell you this is a top notch piece of work. It is high time somebody did it!"

manual for them. This is the most complete program for training
students I have ever seen. It will really enhance our program."

"I am very pleased to make
recommendations, especially for your tuning / technician course
which is very much a best buy. Do you compare your charges to
present day college training courses? Your fees are quite low in
comparison with other professional training I am aware of."
Don Loftus, RPT

"I am convinced that you have
the most comprehensive course that I have seen. What I would have
given for help of that magnitude when I was learning! Your idea
of videos along with your test and apprenticeship situation
sounds great. Be assured that I will gladly point inquiring
people wanting to learn piano technology to your excellent course

school) for a year. I wish your course had been available then.
Now I recommend those wishing to become piano technicians to take
your course instead."

very much! It is very well done! I have been through a four year
college program and have received a Bachelor of Science degree,

as what I am receiving from you!"

tapes listed on the Loaning Library form. This service is another

"I received my diploma, for
which I thank you immensely. To say that I am pleased or happy
would be the understatement of the year. Overjoyed! Ecstatic! As
you know, I had already been out doing tuning jobs, even before
finishing the course. I have had a slowly increasing volume of
business. This steady flow already more than justified the cost
of the course, and the amount of time it took to complete. If you
ever have anyone who wants to know if the course is worth the
time and effort, please feel free to give them my number. I will
be more than happy to tell them what it has done for me."
